Axium Process, filtration specialists, have designed, built and commissioned a self-contained ultrafiltration membrane plant for Waste Recycling Group (WRG), a leading waste management company, which is successfully treating up to 140,000 litres of landfill leachate per day at a site in North Lincolnshire.
WRG reviewed a number of technologies designed to treat landfill leachate which would not only meet local water discharge requirements, but also increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the biological treatment system. Membrane filtration is a proven technology in the treatment of landfill leachate as it dramatically reduces the BOD and suspended solids content typical of leachate effluent, requires no dosing chemicals and can provide a smooth discharge flow that meets local water discharge legislation.
WRG selected Axium Process to conduct a series of trials to assess the suitability of membrane technology against their specific site demands which resulted in the successful award of a £200,000 design and build contract.
Axium Process specialises in the design and build of custom built manual and automatic systems that can provide payback times of often less than 2-3 years. The company’s services also include pilot testing, process simulation, technical support, full training and plant optimisation.
